Moonstone Midwifery is a CPM (certified professional midwife). A CPM has restrictions such as not being able to perform a VBAC, twin births or breech births. Also if you should become a high risk pregnancy you would “risk out” and no longer be able to be under the direct care of a midwife for your delivery. A high risk pregnancy includes things such as pregnancy-induced hypertension, pre-eclampsia, severe anemia, placenta previa, preterm labor, gestational diabetes that is not diet controlled, and other medical complications. You would still receive educational and emotional support from your CPM through your pregnancy and birth as requested.
